"Clean, Modern... But, those Trains"

14/09/2018

Location is great. Right off of highway 30, and right next to an Applebee's, which we walked over to and had some late night food and drinks. There were numerous other places nearby to eat as well. Our room had a king size bed. Everything was clean, and worked properly. Only complaint was that the sliding barn style bathroom door in room 409 was just a tad too narrow. This wasn't a huge thing as I was sharing a room with my spouse, but, if it were different company, one would not be ok with being able to see in/out around the door, when you assume that the door is closed, and you expect to have full privacy. it really should be at least an inch or so wider than it is. plenty of space in the room, good full breakfast with several different choices. Train tracks are obviously nearby as I was awakened a couple times throughout the night by the their horns. Bring some earplugs if this bothers you.

Previously, this building was another hotel chain. It looks like everything has been redone . We stayed in a king room with a walk-in shower instead of a tub. Great idea!! The bed has a mattress on a platform which I like but it is a little too hard for my husband. Breakfast has a decent assortment of foods from fresh fruit to cereals plus a hot egg and meat option.Good coffee, too.

"Thank you for being pet friendly !"

The front desk was having a rough time . She did not have our reservation even though we had a confirmed paper copy . We did get a room though . A lot of people were waiting and you could tell they were not happy . My husband heard someone ask for towels and shampoo . It's a nice enough place . My only concern was that it was not super clean . There was a pretty big spider web in the window . Didn't get a picture before the cat took care of eating it . The dust on the bathroom shelves were pretty bad . The common area floors were not especially clean . There was no remote in our room and I saw a cart in the hallway with a person attending it . I inquired who I should ask about the situation and low and behold She had the remote on the cart . Seemed weird . The breakfast was fine and there was attention to detail including soy, whole and 2% milk . Sugar free syrup options was nice to see . We had our cat with us and she did kick some litter into the floor. Sorry . Next time I'll put a towel under it . Our first time traveling with her . I do appreciate Best Western allowing us to travel with our kitty .

Whenever we visit family in Valpo, we stay here. The rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast is great. Very reasonable prices as well. The staff there on 7/7 were amazing and very friendly and kind. They even helped us out when my son was requesting milk in the middle of the night.

My partner and I spent the night after a long drive and day at the beach. very clean room, modern decor. clean modern bathroom with nice water pressure in the shower. shower big enough to share. the king bed was so comfortable and stayed cool at night. the four pillows were enough for the two of us and we slept amazingly. great movie channels. Really tasty breakfast. fastest checkout

"Very impressed!"

29/05/2018

We hadn't stayed at a BW hotel for years. Our BW experience had always been old, dark and smoky. University Inn definitely changed our minds. This BW obviously had been recently remodeled. The staff was exceptional, the hot breakfast was delicious plus many other selections. There is no pool, but as a result, the hotel was very quiet since there were no children running around. Room was updated, nicely furnished, well lit, plenty of accessible outlets and AC was quiet. The bathroom was also well lit with a roomy counter. Carpet looked new and everything was very clean. Is also conveniently located with easy in and out.

"Could be so much better"

11/05/2018

The staff was very nice, but the hotel room was less than ideal. The housekeeping barely made the bed straight. The shower did not drain properly. The Wi-Fi dropped out consistently and it smelled like smoke. I reported it to the front desk several times that it seems like someone is smoking right below me. They sais they would look into it. It wasn't until I went to check out and complained again about the horrendous smell that they told me my room was right above the smoking area! What! Why? Why would you have a non-smoking hotel and then place the smoking area immediately outside the building under rooms. My clothes reeked. Overall, I just felt dirty after staying there.

"Fine stay"

08/05/2018

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. It was fairly clean, the rooms spacious and even though my room was right next to the elevator, it was quiet. We didn't try the free breakfast. We were here for a short time, but if I ever find myself needing to stay in Valparaiso again, I would definitely stay here. Good value.

"Great family hotel."

The rooms are very comfortable. The staff is warm and friendly. The beds are comfortable, overall a very nice clean hotel. the location is excellent. We visit this hotel three or four times a year for a mother daughter weekend.

14/04/2018

My friend and I have stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times over last several years. With the exception of one time our visits have been good. The room has been nice and clean. Beds are comfortable. Convenient location on hwy 30. This visit was a good one as well. Only issue was the towels in the bathroom were not changed regularly. I have written a few reviews about this property and I believe they take them seriously as I have noticed a few changes since last time

"Great Value and Exceptional Staff!"

18/03/2018

The amenities at the Best Western exceeded our expectations. The fitness room has great-quality equipment, and the breakfast suited our needs. The rooms were updated and above all, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We will stay here again next time we are in town.

"Quick one night stay"

04/03/2018

Stayed here for one quick night visiting daughter at Valparaiso university. Nice hotel and reasonable prices. Directly next door to an Applebee's which was convenient. Only thing we didn't like was the barn style sliding door on the bathroom, not very private & didn't close all the way

"working in the area"

29/12/2017

clean rooms and comfortable beds. Very quiet. Had a little trouble with the heat in the room, which was quickly taken care of. Good breakfast and hotel in walking distance of Applebee's for supper. All staff were friendly from check in to check out

"Perfectly fine stay for most types of visitors"

04/12/2017

We stayed at the Best Western for one night in order to attend the VU Christmas Concert. This was our first time at the Best Western, and it provides a similar stay to most other Valpo hotels. It is located on Hwy 30, about a 5-minute drive from downtown or from campus. If you want to walk to campus, you should stay elsewhere. The hotel is on a busy highway, but we couldn't hear any traffic noise while in the room. Our room was perfectly fine, with a king bed and couch. Rooms have been remodeled in the last few years, and everything seemed clean. The TV received about 30 channels, which was enough for me. Our room featured a view of someone's back yard. That is probably a little strange for the homeowner, but doesn't have an impact on the hotel guest. The breakfast area was blissfully uncrowded in the morning, which was a welcome relief from many other hotels. The TV in the breakfast area was blaring CNN at a high volume, but the front desk clerk gave us the remote so we could mute it. Food was about average for a hotel breakfast. If you stay at other Best Westerns, you know what to expect here. It provides a consistent stay at an average price, and should meet the needs of most travelers. I cannot think of much else to say about it.

This hotel has an amazing shower, it's rare to find in hotels these days that are affordable. The bed is very comfortable, the breakfast was hot and quite good. John from the front desk was very helpful! Overall great stay

"Mostly good visit"

21/11/2017

The room itself seemed clean enough. The bathroom wasn't 100% clean. It looked like there were hard water stains on the faucet in the sink. However that was easily wiped off with some water and rubbing with my finger. Toilet seat had a smudge too that was easily cleaned off. Based on my observations I am guessing housekeeping just took a wet rag and quickly took one swipe over everything instead of really cleaning. Breakfast is ok. Nothing to write home about. Staff was nice. Would probably stay again if in the area.

"Nice Hotel"

07/11/2017

Helpful, friendly staff. Very clean room and comfortable bed. Check in and check out were quick and painless. Quiet rooms and a tasty breakfast. Welcoming and comfortable lobby area. I plan to stay again on my next trip out east. Nice hotel!

We only stayed for a few nights, but we are definitely going back when we are in the Valparaiso, Indiana area. Great prices, excellent staff, terrific breakfast included. This is a family friendly place - clean, tidy. Good location close to restaurants and shopping

Great service from check in to check out from the friendly and courteous staff. Convenient location to the university as well as downtown. The room was clean and well appointed with a coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave. WIFI worked great on all my devices. I would stay there again.

"Very pleased for the price!"

We were pleasantly surprised to find a very nicely appointed room. Both decor and cleanliness was impressive. The desk clerk was also very helpful in finding points of interests to attend during our stay.

"Great Choice"

24/10/2017

We chose to stay at the Best Western University Inn for an overnight visit on the way home from a wedding in the Chicago area. We saved about $30 compared to other hotels in the area but we were a little skeptical on what we would find there. We were 100% totally satisfied with our stay. The hotel and room were very clean and comfortable. The people there were very friendly and the breakfast was great. We highly recommend this hotel.

"Great place for the price"

Recently upgraded, very clean, very courteous staff. Well lit parking lot and Applebee's is across the parking lot. Breakfast is okay, nothing great but will get you going. Great place for a very reasonable price.

"Convenient Location "

3
17/10/2017

This hotel is convenient if you are visiting Valparaiso University or the surrounding area. The hotel parking lot shares space with an Applebee's. Convenient for lunch or dinner. The hotel has the free breakfast but the hours are short 7-10 am. Good assortment of hot and cold items. Rooms are spacious and decorated well. Clean bathrooms and hotel rooms. A little tight on number of clean towels in the bathroom. Had to go to front desk for more towels, toilet paper and tissues. That is a sign of lazy housekeeping. The staff is friendly and tries to resolve issues, but are often out front smoking until a customer needs something. The entrance has a cover from inclement weather but the luggage racks don't have a smooth way to get to your car; it is a step up on the sidewalk. It is a convenient location. Close to highways, the university and shopping. Also across the street from Zao - family adventure location which has mini putt, go carts, laser tag and an arcade. There is free WiFi for hotel guests that works well. Overall, it is an average hotel. For the price, no bells and whistles. No pool and very little common space. Enjoy!

Everything about our stay was excellent. All hotels workers were helpful in all areas from check in nto breakfast to check out. Also, they helped set me up in the Best Western members program.Looking forward to spending more nights at this hotel.

Cleanest and most hospitable place to stay in Valporaiso. Staff goes out of their way to accommodate all requests. Have a nice fitness room if you like to work out in the morning. If there's anything that you feel is inconsistent with your stay they go to any measure to make it right

"Just One Night"

08/10/2017

We stayed here for a visit to Valparaiso University and really liked it! The room was spacious and decorated very nicely. It was clean and even had a microwave which is somewhat unusual to see in hotel rooms these days. Front desk staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was great! Bacon, eggs, waffles, cereals, oatmeal, etc. The only drawback is that we heard a lot of road/traffic noise. We were on the front side of the building on the second floor. Perhaps a request for the opposite side would make it quieter. Great stay and would stay here again!

"Extremely quiet and comfortable"

5
01/10/2017

We find this hotel fits all our needs when traveling to the eastern part of this area. It is very quiet although usually full. It is very clean, a lovely room with very comfortable bed, nice bed linens and peaceful deco. The bathroom was large with a sliding door that seems like a good idea, space wise. The breakfast area was quite large and breakfast was good. We had a small amount of hall noise, but nothing from other rooms. The price per night was higher this trip, but it was homecoming at the university. Easy access from Highway 30. All in all, even with the increase in price, we were very pleased.

This is the third time that my friend and i have stayed at this hotel. This hotel is in the perfect location to get just about anywhere. Rooms are spacious and clean. Front Desk staff seems to be friendly. Though we have only seen i believe his name is John in the evenings. Only issue is our room was not cleaned one day. Other than that no complaints. Much better than last time

"Pleasant surprise"

20/09/2017

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for my wife's 45th high school reunion, and we were pleasantly surprised! The hotel was refurbished a few years ago, but it might as well have been a few weeks ago. Everything was very clean and the room decor was actually quite trendy and fashionable. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower had good water pressure...two of my "must haves" for a hotel. The shower had no signs of any mold or mildew whatsoever, which I often see in showers throughout the world. All of the front desk staff we had dealings with were very friendly and personable. If we return to Valparaiso for any reason, we will stay here without any second thought. Nicely done!

"Excellent as always!"

20/09/2017

The staff at this hotel is what really makes it stand out. The rooms are always well-maintained and the breakfast is very good as well. It is also very nice to have wifi that, for once, actually accommodates requests in a timely manner. No slow, weak signal here.

Pleasant surprise at the value (lowest of the 3 nights we were on the road) and the quality of the hotel (best of the 3 we had stayed in). Not that far away from the "major" ones closer to the highway. Staff very friendly and engaging. Had made reservation on-line, on arrival, manager suggested change to a different configuration (more suited to a family of 3) that cost the same.

We stayed at the Best Western at Valparaiso University. The staff was excellent. The beds were comfy and the breakfast was good. My only issue was there were ants on the night stand due to crumbs not swept up and there were some little blood spots on the sheets and pillow cases. Should have been caught and changed prior to my arrival.

I am a BW rewards member and booked this place because I like BW and it was a reasonable price compared to others in the area. Check in on monday evening with John was very pleasant. John is very friendly and seems to have pride in his workplace. The reception area is very nice & updated. I had requested an upper floor when reserving and was accommodated with room 402. At first i was worried because it was next to elevator but we never heard it. Room was clean and updated. Breakfast was same as most; hot selection, waffles, cereals, pastries, fruit and yogurt. Coffee was great. I used the laundry and workout room, both clean. All of the employees were nice and friendly but we talked and interacted mostly with John and want to give a special shout out to him. We will stay again when back in the area.

10/06/2017

My wife and I stayed there 6/7 & 6/8, and we were very disappointed in overall cleanliness of the hotel inside and outside. Our room had cobwebs and the was very dusty, looks like they only dust in certain spots, base boards look like they have not been touched since remodel. found trash under bed and behind night stand, only reason we found that is because we were looking for the missing tv remote. There were even stains on the few towels that were set out for us. Housekeepers carts left unattended in hallway past 5 p.m. the breakfast that was provided was subpar and the hot foods were luke- warm. the bread they did put out were heels only. With all the competition for the consumers dollar I would expect more.

08/06/2017

Everything was great except breakfast, which could use some healthier options. The cost of this hotel is half of what we paid last year at another hotel, and the staff and service here was better. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

"Subpar compared to my previous stays"

05/06/2017

I have always been a fan of Best Western and have been highly satisfied with this location in the past. I've stayed at this location 4 times in the past 2.5 years. The cleanliness of this location has gone downhill tremendously. There was mud on the floor of my room, green stuff on the side of the toilet (looked like vomit that hadn't been cleaned), the room was dusted only on certain spots (tv stand and bottom shelf of nightstand were AWFUL, seriously looked like hadn't been dusted in a good 6 months). The hallways needed mopping/vacuumed as did the stairway. I even spotted several spider webs on the stair rails. My mom also had a room here at the same time and she and I are both rewards members and checked in together. Our membership wasn't recognized and we didn't receive a gift as we have at other locations. I have family in the area and I'm sure I'll be back in a few months, but I will definitely think twice before booking at this location again.

"Going down hill"

3
04/06/2017

My family & I have stayed at this property several previous times and always thought this to be a superior Best Western property - not so this time! Housekeeping staff not nearly as good & efficient as during previous visits, i.e. garbage not removed from room every day, linens, towels not changed as requested, absolutely no recognition at check-in of Elite status and towels & washcloths extremely threadbare & rough. Unfortunately we will have to consider other chains when we next visit the Valparaiso area. No excuse for membership in rewards program not being recognized!

"Excellent service, modern decor!"

We had an unexpected, extended stay business trip to the area. The hotel had modern decor, well maintained facilities, and excellent services. The breakfast was good, but needed more modern, healthy choices.The staff was friendly and very helpful.

18/05/2017

We stayed here on our trip to Indiana. It was a good place to stop after our trip around Chicago!! As usual, I always check out our places to stay by reading Trip Advisors reviews. I don't think I have every been led astray. Granted, some people are harder to please, but this site fit all my expectations, as I stated, not all Best Westerns have. The location was good, the parking good, we travel with a pickup, hauling a car trailer, so not all sites have parking for our extra length, but this worked out great. The room was very comfortable, clean, and quiet. The staff great to work with and the breakfast was enough for us and the price was good too.

I have stayed here before and return because the hotel is clean, the breakfast is great and the front desk staff is exceptional. Being greeted by pleasant, professional staff is delightful. When there were two people checking out ahead of me, I helped myself to coffee in the breakfast area, the clerk found me and asked a few questions then brought me a receipt. She took the initiative, this is the treatment that brings me back.

Valpo Best Western is a great hotel to stay at when you are in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful when I had questions about places to go in the area. I would highly recommend staying here!

The rooms are spotless, modern, and very well appointed. The beds are very comfortable although the bathroom was quite small. John, at the front desk treated us like family. The breakfast looked good but not enough low carb, high protein options available.

If in this area it is a nice clean and comfortable place to stay. Food right next door. No more then a 2 minute walk. I was in town for business. I did not get to walk or drive around. Looks like the college is near by for those headed their for a game.

This was a nice clean hotel. The room was spacious & had a mini fridge in it. The bed was comfortable. We had a room mix up at check in, they gave us a room that wan't clean yet, but the manager took our key right back downstairs & fixed it right away and got us in a new room right away. The breakfast was good, your normal continental. The staff was friendly & helpful. We were headed into Chicago ghe next morning & it was a good stopping point, only about 1/1.5 hr from city. I would definetly stay here again.

We came to Valparaiso to visit our grandson at the University. We knew nothing about the area and were at the end of a long trip overseas. This hotel was welcoming, comfortable, quiet and clean, and had a laundry room which was a great benefit for us. The buffet breakfast was more than we expected and nicely presented. It's not a fancy hotel, but certainly adequate for anyone's needs.

We stayed at the BW for 6 days. The BW is clean. The rooms are modern but basic. There are no kids channels on the TV at any given time but there's movie channels like Showtime. The free breakfast in the morning was ok. There was always fresh hot coffee that was good, not like your typical hotel/motel coffee. The only ice machine was located on the main floor. My only real complaint was out of the 6 days were were there housekeeping didn't come twice and the 3rd day they didn't straighten up the room but they brought us new towels. On a different day we came back to our room at 4pm to change to go out for dinner. Our room hadn't been cleaned yet but there were 2 housekeepers in a room 2 doors down from ours- 1 housekeeper cleaning while the other was flipping through a magazine.

This was my second time to stay at this hotel. The facility is very nice and conveniently located. Room are spacious with comfortable beds. Very friendly staff. First visit was great. This time the bathroom door was messed up and was not fixed after I was told it would be. The shower curtain was dirty. Notified front desk. Told it would be switched for clean one never was. Then last day the room was not cleaned beds were not made and towels were changed out in bathroom.

Convenient location, staff, and amenities make this a great place. Housekeeping needs a little more attention as regards the floors. Breakfasts are great with a lot of variety. Well stacked mini-store on premises and quick walk to Applebee's in the same parking Lot. Seconds from downtown, the University and shopping.

Ask if room has interior or exterior access when booking. I was unaware that it was an exterior access and do not prefer that. Was OK for the one night. Staff was helpful, but unable to change room location because facility was sold out.

I stay here quit often as do many of my friends. This stay was for a class reunion and was chosen as one of two hotels for our group to stay at.

"One of the best BW hotels in the chain!"

24/07/2016

This was our second stay in less than a year, and I was looking forward to the second visit because we'd had such a nice stay the first time. The decor is a contemporary grayscale color with dark orange accents. A barn door gives privacy to the bathroom. There's a nice big screen tv, comfortable furniture, and a nice sized fridge. The bathroom has a spacious shower and the water flow from the showerhead doesn't feel like they're skimping on the water. The breakfast has scrambled eggs, sausage and BW waffles in addition to the standard continental breakfast items found at many hotels. The coffee is good although I prefer a dark roast - it does the job and delivers the caffeine to jump start the morning. This BW may cost a little more than other hotels in this category but it's worth it!

This is our third stay at this hotel. It has been updated and is modern and clean. The breakfast is good. However, we have not found the staff to be very helpful. The front desk is always empty and I have even had to go outside to the smoking area to find a person when we needed another towel one time. Not sure what the problem is--maybe they are short staffed. But the other issue is that they are not friendly at all and we have been here 3 times with the same experience. If we did not only stay at Best Westerns, we would be looking for another hotel.

Hotel was clean and nicely decorated throughout. Beds were comfy. Water pressure in shower was great. Towels were subpar...small, thin, scratchy. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was OK. Juice, coffee, ready to make waffles, yogurt, cereal, biscuits and gravy...wish they offered eggs and bacon or sausage. Overall the hotel was good and what I expected for the rate I paid. I would stay here again.

"Very Nice Best Western"

13/07/2016

I used the TripAdvisor app to look over the reviews for this property while on the road, then made a reservation. We stayed in a King room with a sofa bed for the kids. We stayed one night in Room 306 for a total of $131.03. This property is very nice. There is plenty of free parking. There is one elevator available to use for the upper floors. The room was clean and was in good working order. The room had a hair dryer, refrigerator, microwave, and a work desk. The only odd thing about the room was the sliding door for the bathroom. It reminded me of some sort of livestock barn door. One did not get a sense of privacy with such a door. TIP: There is an Applebee's across the parking lot that is an easy walk for a hassle-free dinner. TIP: When needing to enter the street, it is better to drive behind the Applebee's, turn on Horseprairie Drive (yes, it is spelled that way), then use the traffic signal. This is a must if you need to go left. TIP: Plan a trip to the beach at Indiana Dunes State Park. It is located about 12 miles from this Best Western.

We had a lake house family gathering to go to in Valpo. This building used to be an independent hotel which was absolutely awful. I decided to try it again because its a BW now. I was very pleased. The people were nice. The whole place was very clean. It seems to have been extensively remodeled. The beds were quite comfortable. The breakfast was very good and well stocked(sausage eggs make your own waffles fruit yogurt pastries cereal coffee milk juice). They dont have a pool but we didnt need one this trip. Its close to a Walgreens if you need incidentals. Its close to a cute mini golf place, Zao. There is a small shop with toiletries and snacks by the front desk in the hotel. We were not bothered by traffic noise or train sounds.

We just recently stayed at this great hotel and were pleasantly surprised at the excellent attentive staff. Our room was very clean but most unexpected was the GREAT breakfast they served each day!! Waffles made to order!!! Yogurt and cereal with numerous toppings, biscuits and gray were FANTASTIC!!! Another morning it was scrambled eggs and sausage and each morning was also bagels and toast available, everything cooked fresh!! I would stay here again any time I was in the area.

19/06/2016

Please get sanitary pads for the hotel as you state you provide them upon request and yet they were nowhere to be found; it will save housekeeping from quite the mess (need I say more). If you dont have something you state you offer, please try to provide any help you can or offer some sort of gift or discount for the inconvenience instead of just saying "nope we don't have it" and turning away. Please make clear the hours that housekeeping is available so that we know they are not skipping our rooms if we are out for the day and the room is ready to be cleaned even after request. Please also have a bell or a ding when someone comes in and out of the front door so that guests are not waiting 10 minutes at the desk for somebody to show up, and so that we may be greeted upon entry as a common courtesy. Othewise, a good experience.

World Travel One, Thank you for your review of our Hotel in Valparaiso. I see you noticed Highway 94 in the review, however, we are several miles from that Highway, and possibly you met to say Highway 30 which runs in the front of our Hotel. We have several guests say that our Hotel is the quietest place to stay in Valparaiso, and hopefully you will give us another opportunity to stay with us.

This hotel has been recently remodeled, it appears. The room I stayed in was long and thin, very roomy, comfortable and well appointed. Bathroom was clean and had a large walk-in shower, again recently remodeled. The only drawback would be a nearby train that is heard every couple of hours. If you are a light sleeper, this might not be the place for you. Otherwise, it was a very good night for the price.

Dave S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN University Inn at Valparaiso, responded to this review
William, Thank you for your recent review of our recently remodeled property in Valparaiso Indiana. We value our guests feedback, and being a downtown Valparaiso resident myself, I find myself waking up to the train on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, the train runs at night all the way into Chicago several times throughout the night, and when I call to complain, all I get is that they do this so they wont back up traffic in the City. I hope you stay with us again, and I have purchased some ear plugs for you, so please ask for me when you arrive. Thanks again,

The hotel was very nice and clean, and the room was well maintained and sparkled like it was new. The beds were comfortable, and they gave plenty of pillows. The refrigerator was probably the largest I have seen in a hotel room of its size. Plus it was nice that it was tucked away instead of being out in the open. The morning breakfast was pretty good, as well. The staff was the friendliest I have ever encountered. They truly cared that my stay was up to standard and tried to get to know me as a customer. I would go back!

Very clean rooms. The staff was very helpful. The rooms are decorated simply and not the slightest bit gaudy.

Overall, a great and affordable hotel!

My wife and I attended a concert in Merrillville and decided to stay here as I had some Best Western points to use. I am in hotels 140+ nights/year but seldom stay in Best Western properties. If they were all as nice as this one, I would probably stay more often. This is my 2nd stay here. Rooms are nice and internet connections worked very well. Staff was very friendly at check-in and check-out. Breakfast area clean with good selection of items. I didn't have a chance to use it but the fitness center was very well equipped, in fact, better than most mid-range hotels I stay in. I've stayed at two other hotels in Valparaiso and would rate this property the same or slightly above those.

We stayed at this Best Western location after a day at the dunes. This is a very nice, clean property. Our King single room was very spacious with refrigerator and microwave with a pretty comfortable bed. No complaints at all.

We stayed here one night during a recent stay in Valparaiso and we enjoyed this hotel. The hotel was very clean and updated, the rooms are big, we had a couch to sit on along with a microwave, and refrigerator in there. The bed was very comfortable! Wish the bathroom was larger, only big enough for one person, the door to the bathroom is a sliding door...kind of strange. The breakfast was the usual things! We really liked the location! Over all a very nice hotel!
